. eric schmidt is the season writer of the "new york times." >> general petraeus says he made it clear all along that it was an organized terror strike. petraeus called it a spontaneous effect earlier. >> i think both versions could be correct. the initial intelligence was it was a spontaneous attack of some kind. general petraeus has told special cabinet members that it was carried about by troops who were al qaeda affiliated. she remembers him saying it was a terrorist attack. so i think lawmakers are focusing on different parts of the same briefing. >> republicans, eric, are saying they don't buy the suggestion, the protest explanation was to make sure al qaeda would be unaware of the u.s. intelligence community's suspicions. are they right about that? >> i think you have to remember the context of that. there may have been perhaps an element of undue caution on the part of the intelligence community not wanting to have the names of the specific route they expected were responsible for this. there were a number of reasons for that. they wouldn't want necessarily to know that they we

that order and to act. >> jennifer: joining me now, eric schmidt national security reporter for the "new york times" and the author of the new book "counter strike". thank you so much for joining me inside "the war room." >> glad to be here. >> jennifer: we're talking an awful lot about wars and you have a certain expertise in that. this book "counter strikes" covers a lot in the new war that we have to wage against an unusual enemy like al-qaeda. how much is cyber warfare playing into the conflict both in israel and in our confrontations with al-qaeda? >> sure. as you mentioned in your lead-in, you see cyber warfare is definitely a part of the enemy structure going after israel. there is a conventional system up now knocking down some of these missiles. israel estimates as much as 90% of the missiles have been knocked down. the u.s. for example in its fight against al-qaeda has been able to hack into the cell phones of al-qaeda leaders and leave false and misleading messages, get into al-qaeda chat rooms, and they are able to go into the cyber chat rooms and foru

, from the biggest company to the smallest mom-and-pop. eric schmidt, google's ceo, who brin and page hired in 2001 to be the resident grown-up, says that the pool of potential advertisers is almost limitless. >> and there's a lot of evidence that the companies of which google is a member are enabling a new kind of commerce between very small communities--people who can find each other--for whom the traditional advertising mechanisms, whether it's television advertising or radio, do not serve. >> the business world is just beginning to grasp the potential. >> and google should be careful, because there are some other companies that have it in their sights, such as microsoft. >> and that's a big deal when microsoft comes after you. >> it is, indeed. >> bill gates has admitted that, "google kicked our butt in internet search." bill gates doesn't like to have his butt kicked, so he just launched a prototype of microsoft search engine. bill gates breathing down your necks. do you feel this? do you feel a pressure? >> we do not today. it's perfectly possible that the current competitors ca

the same amount of money for you as it does for me. i interviewed eric schmidt when he was still the ceo of global. his office is no longer than the podium to the armchair. with the small office and it as a journalist real like to set up to people to get them to disclose their secrets. that you are still an engineer. anybody else on the floor need space to work. so here he is a small office anyone can use the office. he said one paying it is not allowed to have a driver. you could have a private jet you are not allowed to have a driver. so there is not really a gap but to turn to the russians there is a very revealing moment from the russian oil tycoon at this moment the richest man but he is in a bad mood. this is what he said to me about oligarchs. if the man is not the oligarchic something is not right with him. everyone has the same starting conditions. and he really meant it and was criticizing himself because he lost a couple hundred million dollars because he entrusted a non oligarch and by a definition had allowed the loss of a few hundred million dollars. there is thinking of a

think we're left with more confusion, if, in fact, the article by eric schmidt in "the new york times" is correct it would indicate that these unclassified talking points had a specific purpose to deceive the american people, but more importantly to deceive al qaeda so that they could continue to monitor their communications. so i think there are still a lot of questions out there, and i'm not sure the last couple of days have clarified much. >> fascinating. let me turn to you nick, depending again when you talk to, there you have a top general saying it's gotten a lot muddier. it's just the danger when you have the need to keep stuff classified because you're going off to certain groups who may have done this and sending people off to ambassador rice to spinning off that it may have been a video protest. >> in some ways, mark is right it has gotten muddier. at the end of the day while it is clear that security is inadequate in benghazi and while it's clear that susan rice's statements in retrospect do not look right, it is clear that they've been totally blown out of proportion. susa

the same amount of money for you as it does for me. i interviewed eric schmidt and i interviewed him in his office when he was the ceo of google. his office was probably from this podium to that armchair, probably certainly no longer than that, may be shorter. from the desk to the bookshelf. a really small office. when i went in, there was a white board that had all kinds of equations scribbled on it. journalists like to suck up to the people we are interviewing to get them to disclose their true secrets. i said that is amazing. you are still an engineer, still writing equations on the white board. he said no, no, i didn't write that. whenever i am not in my office anybody on the floor who needs the space to work can just come in and use my office. /ceo of one of the biggest companies in the world, small office, very dressed down, anyone can use his office, i talked to him about the culture of the valley and he said one thing is it is culturally not allowed here to have a driver. that is simply not done. you can have a private jet but you are not allowed to have a driver. so all of this stu

've said that many times as well. i think eric schmidt might take a job with the government. >> what about sysco? >> sure. sysco's got 30 billion plus is it judge or 40? the domestic numbers -- >> does it matter? >> yeah. it matters. the domestic numbers matter because the repatriation part of it. so i believe sysco's domestic number might only be about 20 billion but that is more than all the rest you've just talked about nearly combined. >> let me throw it out this way quickly. do you buy a stock based on the hopes that it'll do a special dip? >> no. and what i don't understand is people coming in and buying the stocks afterward after you've seen the move equivalent to the dividend. it is ridiculous for a stock to jump up two bucks or $2 special dividend it's already been done. the fundamental story is there and you think they'll do a special dividend that's fine. i don't think you lose money with the companies with great balance sheets and business practices. >> and i told you i felt as though dell was positioning itself in 2013 to be what yahoo has been over the past several months. th

were not political. >> one of the best pieces of advice i got from eric schmidt, the chairman of google. he said you do not want political people. you want people who you are going to draw what you want and they will build that. that was very true. we hired a cto who thought we were crazy be in from mars. and we thought the same of him. we all, to get there, spent a year of learning each other's languages. then we would draw things on the white ford and say this is what we want you to do. build us a program to use facebook to get them to organize their friends. he said that is going to be hard and expensive. i complained about how expensive it was and then we built it. >> what did you learn from him a political person would never have seen? >> what did i learn? i think what he learned. he would say that in the end, they did a lot of things to make door knocking easier. that is what this is about. he said this to me, all of these people in his room and in every door around the country were doing it because of barack obama. we got people to take pay cuts and giveaway golden parachutes bar

advice he had gotten in an adviser he said which adviser eric schmidt the head of google. he went and talked to steven spielberg out in california. you have the irony here of the democratic campaign being the efficient metric corporate consultant type campaign listening to advice from business. >> it's interesting. in that case obama was the ceo. they did another thing, they took a page from the advertising brand loyalty program, basically they stayed very focused on basically their buyers from the previous election, the voters that voted for obama and tracked them over the next four years as far as how their tastes were changing, wrb they were going, what was happening. the combination of using -- not just being in social media but using social media plus stand with their brand loyal consumers, brand loyalty program, that combination was effective. >> i talked to a guy that runs a very large global advertising firm last week. he said, you know, the most surprising thing to me is, that what the obama campaign did that everybody's calling revolutionary, is what we've been doing at
